Actually your REQUIRED TO perform full autolands every 90 days in each aircraft in order to keep it certified to perform such landings when you 'really' need its help.
(work for airline, wrote the system that keeps track of the compliance)
Also have been in aircraft cockpit several times during autolands and even performed one myself in the full SIM. It's pretty amazing.
You mean a democrat believes that the Government should meddle in EVERYTHING and that there nothing that it does not have any limit to what it should do?!
Shock and Horror.
You can run winlink over HF using any HF radio ($200+) and a decent wire antenna on the ship.
Its very popular for sea and also use in remote locations by Missionaries in Africa etc..
You can also use APRS to do automatic position reporting for your ship over HF Radio as well and your family would be able to track your location on a map. http://www.findu.com/
There are also various 'nets' where people all get together on a particular frequency and exchange messages etc. HAM's sill provide national message traffic passing services (Aka TELEGRAMS) for health and welfare messages for people. This is one of the main function that HAM's provide for RedCross, disaster locations etc.
You can come to the net and pick up and messages, and send a telegram to any family friends via HF voice.
Amateur(HAM) Radio is a very very valuable addition to worldwide boating activities.
1) Gasoline is just as explosive as DYNOMITE, its SUPER SUPER dangerous to store. Diesel can be stored very safely for a long time, its not even really flammable hardly, and zero explosive dangers. Also its very dangerous to refill a hot generator with gasoline, diesel is safe enough to pretty much keep it running and refill it on the fly.
2) Gasoline generators usually run at about 6000RPM and are LOUD, Diesel generators run at about ONLY 1500-2000 RPM and are much much more quiet because of it.
3) Gasoline engines are only rated for a life expectancy of hundreds of hours. Diesel generator engines are rated for many thousands and more reliable over that lifetime to boot.
4) When all the gas stations are closed and you can't get anymore (because you were at lease not stupid enough to try and store gasoline on site), you can always steal some diesel from the national guard trucks when they are not looking.
It was just a 'best keyboard for gaming' article.
>You can be SO fast at starting programs or finding files
>by just hitting the Windows key and typing the first few letters.
Congratulations.... Windows just got a half baked copy of yet something else that has been on MacOS for a long time. Now make it work in browser bars, open websites, do math, work in any dialog box in the system etc.. and you can call it equal to what MacOS has had for years.
Why does the new Command & Conquer feel old? Why aren't GREAT games the best for the gaming market?
playREACTION writes an interesting article about the author's feelings why GREAT games are damaging to all other games that don't make the par.
Here's a snippet:
Have you had the pleasures of trying out different massively multiplayer online games? Lineage II, Eve online, Guild Wars, Star Wars Galaxies, ArchLord, bla bla bla. You automatically compare them to the crowned champion, WoW. And they fall out of the skies quicker than you can say 'Peter's paladin's profession'. We know it's healthy for Blizzard's bank account, but is this healthy for the gaming market? I tend to think that we shouldn't give all our money to Blizzard just because they deserve it. We should also give some to the rest so they can actively compete with WoW with new ideas, gameplay, graphics etc. How can you compete with WoW when your development budget is less than WoW's population rate? The games industry is suffering because of this.
